Three decades for GIPF

01 October 2019 | Business

The Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) celebrates its 30th year in existence this month.
Along with the celebration the fund embarks on an extensive information campaign for its members, sharing vital information about the fund and highlighting its achievements.
The campaign runs from 1 to 30 October.
“The GIPF was established in 1989 with a great team of individuals who grew from a staff compliment of two to 244 employees who relentlessly worked in building one of the few fully funded pension funds in Africa that have enough funds to cover its liabilities,” says David Nuyoma, Chief Executive and Principal officer of the GIPF. “The past decade saw GIPF’s assets grow from N$6 894 084 billion in 1999 to the current status of over N$116 billion.”
The campaign highlights the fund’s several milestones and shares testimonies of staff members as well as GIPF members. The campaign also features challenges the fund has faced and how it has navigated through the storms.
The campaign runs in print and broadcast media as well as on all the fund’s social media platforms throughout October.
